    no, get some adhesive remover.

    I would recomend using 3M All Purpose Adhesive Remover and some dental floss

    x2 I let mine sit in the sun for about 4 hours then soaked the molding down with 3m I didnt used the dental floss, I just lifted them slowly and they came off with nothing left behind. The pannels behind the rear wheels bolt on and will leave 4 holes just use plastic weld, work it like body filler, sand, prime,paint, as for the front bumper and bumper ends you will need to buy new ones with out trim holes. The front bumper holes could be welded but the ends you can do nothing to.
    Look at my Avi thats why I still have the trim on the front.

    just grab the moulding and pull.



    for the double backed tape

    get a 3m wheel that removes the double backed tape, attach it to a drill and buff off the glue.

    or adhesive remover and hella elbow grease

    or peel it off with your fingers (but theyll be sore for a couple days)

    i am telling you due what i said its the easiest way, and you can also use a 3M adhesive remover disc which will speed up taking off the 2sided tape

    easier to use an erase wheel. Use floss to remove the molding, then use the eraser wheel to remove the adheasive. I did my entire car in about 20 mins.

    at first i was frustrated but i now seen your age and understand!


    im an aggressive person so i grabbed the moulding and ripped that shit off.

    your paint aint going no where.

    if you want to pull slow or use a heat gun all that does is help keep the adhesive attached to the moulding. most of the time it will stay on the car and you gotta work with it getting all that adhesive off.

    but i hear that eraser wheel that 3m sells is a good thing to use. attach it to a drill and buff the adhesive off.
